Festival Fun and Bohemian Bling

I don?t know about you guys, but I absolutely love all the amazing outdoor activities that the summer and fall bring. My schedule is already packed with bonfires, hikes, and cookouts with friends.

An outdoor afternoon wedding means I throw on a tea-length dress and wedges, and take a gauzy wrap if the weather is going to be on the cooler side. But there is one wedding fashion rule I try to keep in mind when choosing an outfit: Do not upstage the bride. This is obvious, but I?m mentioning it anyway.
